Cape Town Continues to Symbolize Growth in the Western Cape of South Africa
By: James Camstock

Cape Town, usually referred to by locals as 'the mother city' is the largest city in the Western Cape of South Africa. With a population of 3,500,000, this bustling metropolis is also the center for business, a major port, and headquarters for some of the largest corporations in the region. Its beauty and landscape make it one of the most renowned tourist destinations in the world and its diverse population gives it a unique culture. Situated at the base of the majestic Table Mountain, Cape Town is truly the premiere city of the Western Cape of South Africa.

The landscape of Cape Town is unforgettable. The most outstanding feature of Cape Town is the constant and unavoidable presence of Table Mountain. Rising over 3,300 feet above the city bowl of Cape Town, it dominates the city and much of the Western Cape of South Africa. Riding the cable cars through the clouds to the top affords both a view of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans as well as the cliffs and coastline of the Cape. The weather of the Western Cape is generally mild year round, which makes Cape Town a pleasant place to live and work.

There are many suburbs of Cape Town, each with its own personality. This is the result of the diverse heritage of the Western Cape of South Africa, which includes Indonesian, French, Dutch, British, and German settlers as well as the native Afrikaners who inhabit the region. This makes for an eclectic collection of shops, restaurants, and the largest collection of Cape Dutch style architecture in the world.

There are an endless amount of attractions in Cape Town including whale watching, diamond emporiums, and the beaches of the Western Cape 'Riviera,' but perhaps the most important sites to see are the historical ones. The Western Cape of South Africa is home to news-making places like Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was held prisoner for his protests of apartheid.

These landmarks are important reminders of a time when Cape Town was forcefully segregated into restricted districts. In 1948, when apartheid was introduced, the Western Cape of South Africa experienced extreme unrest, with little economic growth. As the popularity of apartheid declined and prisoners were released, Cape Town was finally able to take its place as a world class venue.

Cape Town industries include tourism, manufacturing, mining, drilling for oil, and the importing and exporting of goods. Many major companies have headquarters in Cape Town and the real estate market in the Western Cape of South Africa is booming.

The educational system of the Western Cape of South Africa is also centered in Cape Town. This is thanks to the generous local donations that help fund both the University of Cape Town and Stellenbosch University, which are the leading universities in South Africa.

Cape Town has survived an incredible amount of adversity to become a city that the Western Cape of South Africa can be proud to call its most well-known city. In fact, this extremely diverse city on the Western Cape of South Africa is a model for all world class destinations to take a look at for their own inspiration.
